Boris Johnson denies claims of domestic row

Neighbours had complained of shouting, doors slamming and screaming at Johnson’s London apartment that he shares with partner Carrie Symonds.

Police say they will take no further action, after being called to the home of Boris Johnson – the leading candidate to take over Britain’s Conservative Party.

A neighbour claimed to have heard a loud domestic altercation.

At a campaign event in Birmingham, Johnson downplayed the incident.
